Kids Fundraising for Taiwan Relief Works

Kids Fundraising for Taiwan Relief Works In the morning of August 21st, 2009, children from the Tzu Chi Kindergarten (Da Ai Educare Sdn Bhd) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia put themselves into pairs, one was holding the donation box, whereas the other one was holding the poster.

“Typhoon Morakot hit Taiwan on August 8th, and so it is also known as the “88 Flood”. Because of the mud slides, many people have lost their homes.
